Books are a great place to search for general knowledge, background information, practical applications of research, and more. Use the main search box on the Libraries' homepage at odu.edu/library to search for books on your research topic.
The ODU Libraries purchases all of the ALA award winning and honor books, including Caldecott, Newberry, and more. We also have a pretty great graphic novels collection! To search for Juvenile Books, type your search terms into the search box and when the results come up, limit location to Juvenile, 3rd Floor. Are you a distance student? You can request to have any book in our library mailed directly to you through our Interlibrary Loan program.
If you are struggling, or just need a little extra help with your research, worry no longer! You can set up an online or in-person appointment with your librarian and she will help you as much as she can with all of your research questions. Simply email Karen Centeno, firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to meet!
